Ode to Moxie!
Pretty shoes are one of the many reasons I am SO glad to be a girl. Seriously, do you ever just look at guys’ shoes and think “yawn?” I know I do. The September issue is out and the verdict is in, it is good to be a girl!
Shoes have a magical way of transforming your entire outfit. The same chunky sweater dress can look casual, daytime chic with a pair of Tory Burch riding boots (which I am currently coveting) and cocktail appropriate with the Sam Edelman “Renzo” studded booties (go to Bloomingdales.com, look them up, thank me later). The same goes for the shoes you choose for your wedding day. We know better than anyone that it’s all about the gown, but your shoes really say something about you too. Are you a classic, petal pink ballerina flat or a trendy, blue Manolo ala Carrie Bradshaw? Personally, I went with sparkly Christian Louboutins and I loved them just as much as my gown (maybe even more when you consider that you actually can wear them again)!
To ensure that you start your wedding shoe love story off right, do yourself a favor and head straight to Moxie on Charles Street. The girls there are super cute and helpful and have a wide variety of styles to suit every bride/bridesmaid. The store itself is adorable and welcoming and the location is ideal for a shopping day with your best girls. When we went into Moxie to do research for this blog I of course parlayed that into shopping for myself. Unfortunately they didn’t happen to have my size in the Tory Burch riding boots or Revas that I wanted. Normally, this is a legitimate reason to spiral but they offered to call me when they got more in. Now that’s service! So, say goodbye to the boring, old ivory wedding shoes of the past and say hello to gold sparkle Kate Spade’s, black petaled Badgley Mischka’s and more!
